The moment I finished my very first NutriBlast, I felt great. My energy level increased and I started feeling and sleeping better. I had a feeling that if I continued drinking NutriBlasts, I could possibly increase that great feeling over a longer period of time. I wanted to sustain the good, empowering feeling that my body experienced after drinking a cool NutriBlast. That was how I started my journey as a Blaster!
Slowly, but surely, I changed how I lived my life by eating clean and exercising regularly. I noticed that my body was responding in a positive way. Since my medical symptoms were dissipating, I did not have to rely on so much medication anymore. My doctors noticed the improvement and after a short time, I didn’t have to take all of those medications anymore. My medical issues are being monitored, but things have improved tremendously over the last couple of years.
I am pleased to state that for the first time in a very long time, I am exciting about getting in some exercise. I love having increased energy and having sustained energy throughout the day is awesome. For someone serious about working out, it really helps to have additional energy to make it to the gym and through a tough workout. I went from exercising every now and then to exercising three, four and even up to six times a week.
I still have a ways to go on my fitness journey, but I’m glad that I’m making important steps in the right direction. To me, being a NutriBlaster makes the entire process that much easier.
One lesson I learned during cancer treatment was to be more flexible. One day I would wake up feeling okay and with a great appetite and, by the end of the day, I wanted to crawl under the nearest rock. I have to admit that it was tough learning to constantly adjust to changing conditions since, well, I am a Virgo with OCD tendencies. I’m glad that I learned to be more flexible. It’s something that is necessary in all aspects of life in order to get through the day with as little stress as possible, cancer or no cancer.
People tend to be so busy and caught up in the same routine that when circumstances change, we still plug along with what we are used to instead of taking the time to adjust to new conditions. For example, I know I’m not the only one with the tendency to use the same ingredients every day in my NutriBlasts. It actually took me several weeks before I realized that I should adjust my ingredients based upon my needs at the time. This is especially easy to do if you have the NutriBullet guide book that provides recipes for specific symptoms and health concerns.
So now, I have it down and switch my recipes according to how I feel. My spouse, who happens to be the target of every germ in Los Angeles, relies heavily on my super Vitamin C Blast when he starts to feel sick. This helps lesson the duration of his colds and helps prevent the cold from developing into something awful. This recipe usually involves some grapefruit, kiwi, broccoli and a little bit of spinach. It works every time!
After using my NutriBullet to help me detoxify from chemotherapy, I began making NutriBlasts to address fatigue, stress and hot flashes; I now make a mostly green NutriBlast using a variety of colorful vegetables and some blueberries along with maca powder (which is my “must have” ingredient), goji berries, chia seeds and almonds.
Speaking of detoxing, I do focus on some of the best detoxing fruits and veggies by combining broccoli sprouts, celery, beets, cilantro, a little bit of frozen papaya and a couple of sections from a tangerine. This usually is a pleasant way to detox.
The bottom line is that you should be trying out new recipes and learning to break the cycle of using the same ingredients. Not only is it fun to change things up, you will find that combining certain ingredients really does help you address and take control of whatever may be a concern at a time. You will love your new recipes and so will your body!
Whatever is on sale this week, that’s the name of my favourite recipe!
What I love is you don’t really need a recipe, you can just go to the store and buy whatever fruits and veggies are on sale and throw them in the NutriBullet. Have fun with it! The important part is all the good stuff that comes with drinking them.
After a horrible car accident in 2007, and then another one in 2010, I lost the ability to workout, garden, shovel the snow, etc. I look normal, but if I try to do any of these things, I pay for it with very painful migraines, sometimes lasting for weeks. I’ve always prided myself on being able to stay in shape, but since the second accident I’ve gained 30 pounds. Since I started making my NutriBullet Blasts, I’ve successfully lost a pound a week. I plan to be bikini-ready by October, just in time to celebrate my 50th birthday!
Thanks, NutriBullet, for helping me reach this goal!
NutriBullet user Lori T. had an incredibly difficult diagnosis to deal with. It compromised her health and kept her from eating right. She tried the NutriBullet and was finally able to ingest the nutrients from fruits and vegetables that she hadn’t been able to for so long.
A huge thank you to Lori for sharing her story and here’s wishing you a speedy recovery!
All of my friends and family know how great the NutriBullet experience has been for me, especially in terms of sleep. I immediately realized the benefits when I was springing up in the morning and going strong all day. I started off Blasting to replace breakfast and dinner and lost 7 lbs in the first week. Since then though, I’ve introduced dinners back in most days of the week, but I still have tons of energy and look forward to my daily ritual!
I started the blog because I was posting a picture and ingredients on my Facebook page everyday and I wanted a better way to track all of them (over 70 different recipes so far!) and reach a broader public. I just really want to help others get inspired to come up with their own greatness. I’ve converted 4 of my family and friends!
